Samsung and Apple rake in 99% of mobile profits

A few days ago, we learned that Apple and Samsung are by far the dominant forces in the smartphone market, and it's no surprise that Apple is a profit machine, but the numbers for just how dominant are a bit staggering...

With that kind of dough I know iPhone will stay at the top of the food chain for a while. Apple has the money to invest and make sure it's so.

stay on top of the profit chain. i dont know what other "food chain" you are talking about since they are losing market share more often than not.
sky high profits mean your just paying too much.

your jokes are so lame. lol. whats it like to never have a job and to live off your parents money?
Considering I've worked in the Cell industry for gawd.. about 5 years, your a bit late with the pizza jokes. Besides, why would I be embarrassed of running a business? Have you ever run a million dollar business? I have.
I'd only be embarrassed if i lived at home and spent all day trolling on websites doing all I could to get negative marks on my posts.. which you admit you do on purpose because you think it makes you "famous" or "important" on the website. Sad sad little troll.

I didn't know delivering pizza was "running a million dollar business".

again, because you live at home. Maybe you should go look up the businesses to get into to become a millionaire.
Really taco, you are so clueless its funny... really funny. We passed "its sad" a while back..

Btw I guess I should buy my phones from a company that's losing money so I know I'm not overpaying huh.

a little logic taco.
why do YOU care how much a company makes or loses? If your not getting a good VALUE for your dollar, you are spending too much, regardless of the company. Its not like if Apple does good you do good, or if Tmobile does bad it hurts you. Tmobile's bad quarters made it take the chance on droping their pricing lower than everyone else while maintaining the largest 4G network in the USA as well as it being nearly the fastest.
Only a fool thinks that paying more automatically makes it better than something thats cheaper.

hey im going back to your market share thing at the top but can you use that argument? there are only 5 or 6 iterations of the iphone, and yet they still have a huge market share, compared to the huge amount of of androids that are out there.

Nice to see HTC with 1%! Seriously though, this is a cutthroat business if only three smartphone manufacturers out of however many there are can turn a profit.

Good job Apple and Samsung! It's good that these companies are neck and neck so they both put out products to try and overtake each other. It's a win for us.

Actually it is not neck and neck, but more likely Apple's butt through Samsung's binoculars. :)

no,company always win not us. coz everytime they release a new product.they temp the buyer to buy it becoz it is much improve than the other device. So every time you buy a new phone becoz you know that that is the fastest device then after a months they have much faster device then after half a year your device is paste out. hahah.
